From Kos you can
direct your boat through the Dodecanese
. From here you can also
touch the coast of Turkey by sailboat.
Sailing enthusiasts and island hoppers regard Kos as the perfect entry port for a sailing holiday in the Sporades Islands, in the Southern Dodecanese group of Greek Islands. Just three nautical miles from Turkey, Kos has over 100 km of coastline and is well-served by the Kos Island International Airport as well as ferries—from Athens, the ride is about 5-6 hours; from Bodrum, about 1 hour.
The village of Kos, where the harbor is located, is full of cafés, restaurants and bars—the nightlife here in the summer months is renowned throughout the Mediterranean. The Marina in Kos was first opened in 2001, and has all of the facilities and services a modern harbor needs if your desire is to rent a boat here.
For many, the island of Kos is beautiful enough to be a final destination, but as a departure base it truly opens up all the hidden treasures of the Aegean Sea, with the allure of Asia Minor just an easy sail away.
